Hurricane Kids PSA
Public Service Announcement - Cable System I
Cox Communications, Gulf Coast
Ft. Walton Beach, FL
Hurricane KidsCox Gulf Coast produced a public service announcement to promote a book written by a group of 4th grade students, When the Hurricane Blew. The students wrote about and illustrated their experiences dealing with Hurricane Ivan and wanted to share their story with other children experiencing such a traumatic event. Cox’s PSA campaign helped spread the word about the publication and enhanced sales of the book. To date, the students have raised nearly $8,000, which they plan to send to schools in Louisiana and Mississippi that were devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
